So how much money do Leeds have then

Just wondering how much money they owe after the recent sales?

According to the Leeds Chairman on Sky Sports News last night, the debt now currently stands at £80 million.

Hmm...

So in other words, back in December, the debt was £78m. Seven months later, and after the sale of Fowler, Woodgate and Kewel (has Dacourt gone?), the debt is at £80m...

I guess that's what happens when you have an out of control wage bill.

Who do they have left to sell? Robinson, Mills, Smith. Can't see them getting out of this any time soon

But you need to take into account the fact that transfer fee's are not paid in full straight away, so I would assume they are also owed a fair few quid.

How on earth could they manage to get into that much debt!!!

If the debt currently stands at £80 million what was it before they started selling off their best players cheaply???

Probably just bad forecasting after they reached the giddy heights of the semis of the Champions League.

That table isn't spot on accurate but its bloody funny

Dacourt wasn't sold last year, he just went on loan to Roma. He impressed in his 18 appearances and has just completed a £3.5m signing.
